About the Exhibition


The 82nd Juried Exhibition will be juried by Joanne Grüne-Yanoff.

Call to Artists

What is Belonging?

Belonging can be an idea, a memory, a concept we carry with us wherever we may find ourselves.

Juror Joanne Grüne-Yanoff invites makers to submit works that reflect on the question: What is Belonging?

Submissions can include two and three dimensional works, time based works (video, animation, sound), music, text, gardens, etc.

As part of the submission process, applicants will be asked to submit a word or sentence describing what belonging means to them, which may be integrated into an artwork that will be part of the exhibition.

About the Juror

Joanne Grüne-Yanoff is a Swedish-American transdisciplinary artist based in Stockholm, Sweden and Philadelphia, PA. In her practice she examines the individual’s charged relationship with the outside world. This exploration threads visually through her work and connects with workshops she runs with marginalized populations around the world to help build tools for finding home and community. Her installations explore connection and creative transformation as tools of resilience.

Application Procedure

Starting January 15, 2024, submissions must be made online at and formatted as a JPG, GIF, PNG, MP3, MP4, or MOV file. Artists may submit up to FIVE artworks for consideration.

Multiple views can be combined split-screen style into one image.) or in video format for animation, film, or other time-based media.
